George Takei, best known for his role as Mr. Sulu in the popular television series Star Trek, has set a wedding date with Brad Altman, his partner of 20 years. The Sept. 14 wedding will take place at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles. The announcement comes on the heels of the California State Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage.
Takei says that the event will be a star-studded affair, with Walter Koenig, who played Chekhov on Star Trek, serving as best man and Nichelle Nichols, who played Uhura on the series, will be the matron of honor. Also in attendance will be Leonard Nimoy, who is famous for his Spock character. William Shatner, however, looks like he will be left off the guest list at the 200-seat affair.
If you, like Shatner, are one of the many who will not be attendance at the wedding, fear not, you can still catch the 71-year-old Takei in the new Adam Sandler movie You Don’t Mess with the Zohan.
